King Robert And The Spider.



And now
When all is done, there is nothing to say
You have gone and so effortlessly
You have won, you can go ahead tell them

Tell them all I know now
Shout it from the roof tops
Write it on the sky line
All we had is gone now

Tell them I was happy
And my heart is broken
All my scars are open
Tell them what I hoped would be impossible,

-Impossible by James Arthur

Hello. Sarah Rashid here. I write poems and all that comes to my mind in this blog of mine, in case you people forgot. I won’t blame anyone who did though, because it’s been 17 days since I blogged. I honestly missed writing and you could probably see it the way I am blabbering right now so without any further delay let’s start on today’s topic.

I remember that when I was in elementary school, we read this really inspiring story. I usually don’t remember stuff that old but that story has just help me fight through so much in my life I can’t help but recall it whenever it’s neccessary. The story is really famous so I am sure many of you would be aware of it. I think it’s called ‘KING ROBERT AND THE SPIDER’. 

The story is about the king of Scotland as far as I can remember. He and his army were once defeated in a battle. The king took shelter in a cave to save his life. He was feeling really dejected about losing the battle when he saw a spider trying to weave it’s web. Every time the spider would try to make its way up, it would fall down, the spider kept going up and then slipping down, it kept trying, and finally after a lot of tries, it finally completed the web. As King Robert observed all this, he realized how a small spider had tought him such a big lesson. He had failed once only because he just tried once. So finally knowing what to do, Robert went out and gathered all the soldiers who had survived. He went to the battle again and lost again, he went again and lost and so it went on until he finally won. And that day, he learned the most precious lesson of his life, ‘If you fail at the first attempt, try try and try again’.

And this why I love this story so much. I don’t care if it’s true or not. It is just so inspiring I don’t know how can anyone not take a lesson from it. I remember this amazing line from a Paulo Coelho book, ‘Only he who gives up is defeated, Everyone else is victorious’ – The Manuscript Found In Accra ( I L.O.V.E THAT BOOK!)

So, fellow bloggers, if you try and try and try, again and again, you do succeed at the end. I really want to know if you people have any such experiences and stories like King Robert’s, if so, please please C.O.M.M.E.N.T!!!

– Wish you people have a lot of fun in the halloween holidays, (if you guys get any).

-Hope you all had a great weekend.

-Be nice, do good.

-Peace to you all!

It is possible to make a beautiful fire even in the snow.

So we will let our dreams take flight

And our hearts ignite

Did you know that it’s true

Everything is possible 

There’s nothing we can’t do

It’s a wild and beautiful fire

And I believe in you.

Hey. I know I am not really writing anything that make sense lately, but I am a little lost right now.And a lot of things are not making any sense to me as well. Nothing big. But I’ve been overthinking a lot lately. And I like or not, it’s taking a toll on my blogging.

To be honest, the response that I get from other bloggers even when my own writing doesn’t satisfy me is really fascinating. So that pushes me to keep writing even on days when I am feeling low. 

The stuff that I wrote above was not suppose to be the part of this post. But, whatever. In this post, I am going to copy-paste one of my old post from February 2015. I was really new to blogging back then but when I read that post today, it felt like one of the best thing I’ve ever written. So without any further delay, here it goes:


SUCCESS was, is, and will be the most wanted factor in a person’s life. It demands you dedication, honesty, time and your STRUGGLE. If we see and observe the life of the most successful people of the year in present, we may be left stunned by the number of failures and hardship the respective person might have faced. People who set their goals to achieve success at a young age with no or little experience are often discouraged by the society and are also advised by people to stay calm and keep their passions depth low. But researches have proved that those young people who set to find their destinations at young age are tend to be more successful than those who keep weaving their teenage dreams but make no efforts to work upon them. And then finally become the employees of those brilliant minds who used to bleed themselves to work when those teenagers used to be busy partying.

Recently, my passion for books led me to read a book named “THE MAGIC OF THINKING BIG’. The book was indeed magical the contents of the book were,

  1. Believe that you can succeed and you will
  2. Cure yourself of excusitis, the failure disease
  3. Build confidence and destroy fear
  4. How to think big
  5. How to think and dream creatively
  6. You are what you think you are
  7. How to turn defeat into victory

These were SOME of the magical book’s contents. The rest of them were also good but these were The Best. The moral of the whole topic was that YOUare the only person who knows what you can do. At many stages of life, people may discourage you, criticize you, and force you but the end of the day, YOU ARE YOUR OWN HERO. You will see the result of your success and in the whole painful journey, you’ll know the REALITY of this world.

The End.

I don’t know if many of you have read it before but I had to post it.

-Thanks for reading

-Have a good day

– Be nice; do good
